Technical Committee For Turtles And Iguanas

On November 9, 2021, the scientific department participated via video conference in the annual technical committee meeting of the National Sea Turtle Plan that took place in Guadeloupe—they did not attend due to the pandemic. The committee, coordinated by the ONF, brought together all of the active organizations that are part of the plan in Guadeloupe and Saint Martin, with the Réserve as the local representative in Saint Martin. This event was the perfect occasion for summarize the activities completed throughout the year, and look at the goals for the national plan in 2022, in terms of knowledge, conservation, and awareness. On December 14, the Lesser Antilles iguana was the subject of a discussion by the technical committee —also by video conference— to promote protection of this species, on the IUCN’s critically endangered list and threatened with extinction.
